I'm in the minority here but it wouldn't be the end of the world for me if they did. I don't do a lot of streaming because my PC isn't hooked up to my stereo. Most of my listening comes in the car or hanging out on my back deck. Besides, I already have a bunch I never have even gotten around to. I also think for them to try and make much money on official releases is a joke. We're a fading fan base and let's face it Pandora's box was opened a LONG time ago. All of us could pick up what's out there via trade if we had too.Don't get me wrong I like instant gratification as much as anyone, but sometimes I think we've all been spoiled to the point where we no longer appreciate it.

The smart thing for them to do business wise is to do a pay as you go ( like a subscription based on bandwidth size or per show ). Think about it, no production costs and no trying to guess what people will go for. If they want to release stuff then how about stop F'n around and release things like video before we're all Dead ( no pun intended )? What's the hold up? David Lemieux said they have more footage from the Dead movie release. What are they waiting for? Who's not going to jump on that?

That last para is a good point. Isn't there some way we could lobby the GD organisation or Rhino to release some DVDs. I seem to remember an online petition got going when the boards were made off limits to downloaders here. A positive plea might result in a happier outcome.

I'm still waiting for the DVD-not the grainy whats out there now- but a commercial DVD of the Sunshine Daydream Movie
